Chevrolet Teams Up With Data Scientist To Create Epic Family Road Trip

Here’s a fun article I found in the Chevrolet Pressroom. Enjoy!

Algorithm calculates optimal 48-state route to visit family-favorite attractions

DETROIT — Chevrolet enlisted the expertise of prominent data scientist Randy Olson to help families make the most of their spring road trip plans. Olson created a map using a custom algorithm to plan an efficient route through all 48 contiguous states, with stops at 48 of some of the best-known and most beloved family vacation spots across the United States.

According to a recent national survey commissioned by Chevrolet, spending time with family and exploring new and interesting locations were U.S. parents’ top two favorite aspects of family road trips.

Chevrolet-American-Family-Road-Trip-Map

From national landmarks to thrilling theme parks and everything in between, this data-driven map provides an efficient route between destinations with the least amount of backtracking and stress — an important consideration for traveling families.

“This map is designed so road trippers can start anywhere and drive as much or as little as they like,” said Olson. “Across the U.S., people can create their perfect route, whether staying close to home or embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime 48-state journey.”

To traverse the entire 48-state route, travelers would spend more than 214.56 hours (approximately 9 days) on the road and log 13,389 miles on the odometer — not including time or mileage for overnight breaks and detours.

“Road trips are about creating shared memories and quality time with family and friends,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “And when on the road, travelers can trust Chevrolet vehicles to help get them where they’re going reliably. Chevy is now the only brand to earn J.D. Power Dependability Awards for cars, trucks and SUVs three years in a row2.”

Chevrolet earned J.D. Power Dependability Awards for Most Dependable Compact SUV, Midsize SUV, Large Light Duty Pickup and Midsize Car.

The national survey commissioned by Chevrolet also found that parents typically bring an average of 6.6 mobile devices in the vehicle on family road trips. Technology offered in vehicles such as the all-new Chevrolet Traverse, Equinox and Trax can help keep travelers entertained and connected with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi2, built-in navigation and Apple CarPlay3 and Android Auto4 compatibility.

Other available Chevrolet technology and safety features that can help enhance a family road trip include:

  • Surround Vision5
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert5
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning5
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert5
  • Rear Park Assist5
  • Rear Seat Reminder6 

     

Chevrolet also worked with Olson to curate shorter road trips for families looking to explore different parts of the country in-depth, including the Midwest, the Northeast, the West Coast, Texas and Florida.
In the spirit of Find New Roads, Chevrolet wishes everyone a safe and happy road trip season.

Celebrating 100 Years of Iconic Chevrolet Trucks

100 year

2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the first production Chevrolet Truck. In celebration of this milestone, we are taking a look back at 10 of the most influential trucks in Chevrolet’s history. Additionally, Chevrolet is honoring its truck centennial with a special announcement!

 

Here are 10 of the most iconic Chevrolet trucks of the past 100 years:

  • 1918 One-Ton: This was the first production truck from Chevrolet. It took inspiration from the vehicles that were being used in the plants to move parts and pieces. It featured an open cab and was purpose-built.
  • 1929 International Series LD: Eleven years later, this was the first truck with a closed cab. Interior design began to become important for comfort and style.
  • 1938 Half-Ton: The Half-Ton was the first truck created by the newly formed Design Center. This year also saw a deviation in the design of trucks and cars, realizing that trucks needed their own identity.
  • 1947 3100 Series: It’s known for having one of the most iconic designs in automotive history. When people think of vintage trucks, the 3100 Series is likely to come to mind. This was also the beginning of the horizontal-bar front grill instead of the traditional vertical-bar grill.
  • 1955 3124 Series Cameo Carrier: This was the first Chevrolet truck with fleetside design. During this time, styling became a selling point for cars which inspired more focus to be put on a truck’s design as well. Instead of the design ending with the cab, the Cameo Carrier was designed bumper-to-bumper.
  • 1967 C10 Fleetside: Metallic paint was introduced and was used to highlight the subtleties and body lines that weren’t as obvious before.
  • 1973 C30 One-Ton Dually: Many consider this to be the first modern heavy-duty truck. The design reflected the dramatic increase in capability for customers who used their trucks for both work and play.
  • 1988 C/K 1500: The 1988 C/K 1500 was the first truck whose design was influenced by aerodynamics. It looked very advanced for its time and even the interior looked futuristic.
  • 1988 Silverado 1500 LT Z71: This was the first generation using the Silverado nameplate.
  • 2007 Silverado 1500: The 2007 Silverado model brought back the “tough truck” look and feel, even though it was still influenced by design and aerodynamics.

 

After a century, Chevrolet is still the only manufacturer to offer customers a three-truck portfolio and a full line of special editions. The Chevrolet truck line-up gives customers more options to find the perfect truck to fit their needs and lifestyle. To honor its history, Chevrolet has announced the new 2018 Silverado and 2018 Colorado Centennial Special Editions. These Centennial Editions feature design elements inspired by Chevrolet trucks throughout history, including a Centennial Blue paint, exclusive heritage bowtie emblems, and 100-year badges.

The 2018 Silverado will be available in October, and the 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition will be available in November.

 

Bonus Fact: The 1918 Chevrolet One-Ton was powered by a four-cylinder engine rated at 36 horsepower. Its top speed was 25mph.

 

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Camaro

Back in 1967, Chevrolet unveiled the first Camaro. When asked what the word Camaro meant, a representative responded: “A Camaro is a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.” Now in 2017, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Camaro.

Before looking ahead, we need to pay respect to what came before. The Camaro wasn’t built in a generation – it evolved through six. Each innovation has been the starting point for the next.

CamaroWhen it first came out, the Camaro was fit for the times. 1967 was a time of active, youthful movement which was perfect for getting behind the wheel of the First Generation.

The Second Generation was the personification of its fans, sharing in creative passion; passion for performance and style. This passion stuck through every generation that followed.

26-1971-Camaro-ZR71-LS9-GAP-Racing.JPG

The 80’s was an era of excess and with the Third Generation, the sky was the limit. This Camaro could go from the showroom to the drag strip.

The Fourth Generation was a little bit of everything. It was living on its legacy in a new era.

1997-chevrolet-camaro-10

Then it was gone! But the true Camaro fans knew it wasn’t the end – this incredible sports car would be back one day. Next came the Fifth Generation; Chevrolet looked back to the first generation models for inspiration and took what worked well and spruced it up with a new contemporary design.

The Camaro has carved a distinctive place among American muscle cars with passionate owners who appreciate engine horsepower and impressive handling.

Now it’s time for the Sixth Generation; tying in key, track-related Camaro features from the past and bringing them into the current day, making it leaner, stronger, and faster – because there is no feeling like driving a Camaro. The 50th Anniversary Edition honors the distinctive looks and performance that have always set the Camaro apart. It is now available in both Coupe and Convertible 2LT and 2SS models.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox: Lean, Mean… and Strong

1495422367510

The all-new Chevrolet Equinox has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year; a redesign that includes shedding 400 pounds of extra weight! So, what do drivers gain by this 10% body-mass loss? For starters, our most popular crossover is now more agile on the road and offers drivers a more safe, comfortable driving experience.

Thanks to a lighter, stiffer, and stronger structure, the 2018 Equinox rewards drivers in the following areas:

SAFETY: High-strength and ultra-high strength steel creates a safety cage around its passengers, which are complimented by the high-level restraint systems and available safety features.

RIDE & HANDLING: By reducing the chassis flex in the Equinox suspension system, Chevrolet engineers were able to focus more on overall ride comfort and precision on the road.

QUIETNESS & REFINEMENT: The stiffer body-structure of the Equinox also pays off when it comes to blocking out exterior noise and vibrations. Contributing the overall weight loss of the Equinox, the stiffer body-structure also means that engineers could reduce the amount of sound-absorbing materials in the overall design.

FUEL ECONOMY: This might seem like a no-brainer, but we’re pretty excited about this added benefit of the 2018 Equinox! The lower the weight, the better then fuel efficiency. The all-new Equinox delivers EPA estimated 32MPG and 29MPG on the highway with the standard 1.5L turbo and 2.0L turbo engines. The diesel engine offers a GM-estimated 40MPG on the highway.

Like the many models before it, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox features a modern, expressive design and is equipped with the latest in vehicle connectivity and safety features.
